Have Time

“What is this life

so full of care,

We don’t have time

to stand and stare.”

.

see

if possible

hear if  thinkable

words can become visual

listen

Haiku:

.

in every season

find a moment of quiet

natures time to rest

.

Poem:

.

the poet was obvious
it was his  life story
he sought for the vainglorious
always looking for the right allegory

parents did the best they could
neighborhood tussles and puppy love
school influenced as it should
too short to be heads above

more schooling, mostly party time
learned about sex, his ruin
no ladder of success did he ever climb
selfish, self-centered, never a union

mumble, stumble, hiding in fear                                                                                                                           content to blend into nothing                                                                                                                                     too proud to ever shed a tear                                                                                                                             emotions were for the stuffing

blessed by a Higher Power                                                                                                                                           he found there was a solution                                                                                                                                    a great fall from the ivory tower                                                                                                                                time for penance and retribution

guilt and shame swept off the street                                                                                                                   humility learned by serving others                                                                                                                            a transformation totally complete                                                                                                                              glad to be a part of a band of brothers

finally, just blessed to be so, so average

Poem:

.

bugs rule the world
waiting for the bug man
the eco system to be imperiled
we know it is just another scam

the roach can survive a nuclear attack
live three days without it’s head
can see where its going in the pitch black
they will be here long after man is dead

the best bugs give us silk and honey
mosquitoes and fire ants the biggest pest
centipedes give us a run for our money
their goal is the whole wide world to infest

certain aboriginals do the larva eat
some pay good money for chocolate covered ants
I’m not quite certain I’d call them a treat
I will not go out of my way to give them a chance

no itching or scratching
it only makes things worse
just think of the millions now hatching
believe, Nature’s plan is not a curse

protect all life (maybe) as holy
and it is still fine to feed the fish
to eliminate the moths who make us holey
believe me, my favorite sound is still …. squish
